Balboa fabric, Erin's second collection for Robert Kaufman. Following Arroyo, her first fabric collection and a SewMondo house favourite, Balboa offers a sophisticated palette of modern linen fabrics unique to this creative market.
This collection was inspired by explorations into the world of textiles, featuring pattern motifs that echo Anni Albers’ weavings, Sashiko mending techniques, endless spools of cotton thread, and traditional woven baskets from around the world. The color palette is drawn from life in Erin's new city: San Diego. Lots of beautiful blues, sandy tans, and even a little green.
Erin's pattern designs are pared down to their minimalist essence, and printed in black or white ink, echoing her designs for Cotton & Flax.Balboa is printed on Essex, Robert Kaufman’s signature 55% linen, 45% cotton blend fabric that's well suited to sewing apparel, quilts, bags, and more.
